Received as a gift from Sheri and Mike. Thank you!
Day 13 of 24 beers of Christmas 2021. Date on can of 2021-10-27.
Pours cloudy with a pure white foam that covers. Retention is a bit slight. Minor but not much lacing.
Aroma of pineapple, hints of lemon, light mango and sweet. Mild tropical fruit medley.
Taste is really light no matter what the descriptors. Lemon, pineapple and sweetness. There is a light bitterness to the finish that quickly defuses.
Light body, too light. Huge, spritzy, carbonation that tries to build the mouthfeel. Juicy to begin, gradually becoming dry.
This is a really light bodied NEIPA. Is it a NEIPA? At two months old possibly past its prime. If you are making me an IPA, make me an IPA. Don't go shallow in the hop department. Oddly, I would have this beer again but only in the summer. Enjoy!

Brewed to counterbalance the decadence of the holidays, Elf Boots packs the haze and aroma of the Boots series into a Session IPA. The hop bouquet of El Dorado and Mosaic were blended to highlight the flavors of Lime Jello Molds with your Aunt Carol’s Ambrosia.
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Clavin, of Cheers
